Kirby Cove Beach, San Francisco Overview

Kirby Cove Beach is a secluded, course-sand beach and camping area with a spectacular view of the Golden Gate Bridge facing east. Made up of red and brown sand with plenty of colourful pebbles the beach is situated at the base of the Marin Headlands and can be accessed via the Kirby Beach Trail, which is a 2-mile round-trip hike that starts just west of the Battery Spencer parking lot. The trail is relatively steep, so take caution as the descent to the beach may be easy, but the return trip can test your mettle. After a somewhat hectic hike, the demanding effort of this excursion will prove worthwhile for its alluring scenic views.

The beach is one of the best spots for the most scenic and panoramic views of the city. The area also has tent camps located next to the military gun site of Battery Kirby which can be booked upto 3 months prior to your visit. We recommend carrying enough drinking water as there is none available at the site.
